    2-1/2 Cord and Counting

    Well I hit halfway on my wood supply for this season, 2-1/2 cord so far. I'm guessing I'll use another cord to the end of the season.

    From what others up your way have said about this winter, I have no trouble believing you.

    Same here. When spring finally gets here I need to get the supply built back up.

    Do you stack it right under the overhang after split, or do you let it dry out in the open air for a while?

    I usually stack it right there. I stack it pretty loose so it dries good. My next year's wood is under another shelter so whatever I burn has at least a year to dry.

    WOW.......only 2.5 cord? My brother burns wood and he's already gone through almost 5. Big house though. He normally burns 6.5 cord from Oct - Apr. I burn anthracite coal and I've burned more this winter than normal. Anything is cheaper than heating oil!

    I'm half way on my 3rd cord since Oct. Been letting the oil furnace run a bit on the overnight to lower the oil supply for a tank change out in the Spring.

    I'm always interested when folks are burning coal. I heated with coal in a Riteway 37 tied into the cold air return in my old house. I'd not burn coal again in that system, maybe a room stove or "modern" coal/wood furnace. The old system was just too dusty and dirty for my liking.

    What's a ton of anthracite chestnut price now?

    Nut coal is $270 per ton (bulk). It'd be a whole lot cheaper If I didn't live 700 miles from coal country (NEPA). I burn rice coal (bagged) and it's $300 per ton.

    There are not many coal mines left around here in NEPA. If the president has his way, there will be none.

    Glad I'm not doing coal at those prices! I used to pay $110/ton hauling bulk myself @ 1.5 ton per load.

    AND.... Just wait until that fateful night when the White House resident sits straight up in bed and sez, "Takatifu twiga mashonde, Michelle. there's guys out there not being taxed on their firewood! Gimme a pen and the phone...!"
